A proven solution to the Syrian crisis
Updated: 2013-09-12 10:19:10
President Obama said, "...my administration has tried diplomacy and sanctions, warning, and negotiations - but chemical weapons were still used by the Assad regime." Even if Assad gives up his chemical weapons and joins the Chemical Weapons Convention, prohibiting their use, the Syrian crisis will still not be solved. Also, regarding any future military action, Obama has said "…we cannot resolve someone else's civil war through force, particularly after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan."
Obama's previous actions and any future military actions are based largely on conjecture, and such is their outcome. It is particularly dangerous to base actions on guesswork, especially in the Middle East. A massive regional firestorm could erupt.
There is a scientifically-validated approach to effectively, efficiently, and quickly end turmoil. If President Obama has the political will to order his military to deploy an unusual but effective approach, he no longer needs to base actions on guesses.
This means of violence removal is based on peer-reviewed research. The approach has been field-tested by non-US militaries and validated by 23 studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Based on 25 years of research, it has been endorsed by independent scientists and scholars.
Where deployed by foreign military circles, it is known as Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). This preventive defense system is thought to work on the level of the unified field, where all the forces of nature are united. This defense technology supersedes all others based on weaker electronic, chemical, and nuclear forces.
For political reasons, the US Department of Defense (DoD) has ignored this unified field-based approach. Despite the success of IDT deployment by Latin American militaries, the DoD continues to rely almost solely on its non-unified field-based weaponry, rather than on the IDT prevention-based approach.
IDT involves creating Preventive Wings of the Military. Their warrior's daily routine includes two hours twice a day practice of a human resource-based technology, also known and researched as the Transcendental Meditation and its advanced TM-Sidhi program. As a military societal coherence-creating unit, they quietly practice these programs for about two hours, twice a day, seven days a week, preferably in a secure location near the targeted population. Their presence and operation does not need to be disclosed to achieve the effect of violence removal and conflict resolution.
The 23 studies carried out in developed and developing nations in all continents, including the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, constitute the largest and the most successful experiment in social sciences of the 20th century.
Such coherence-creating groups have achieved positive benefits to society, shown statistically, in even just 48 hours. Modern statistical methods used in this research preclude chance or coincidence.
The IDT approach was used during wartime (drop in fighting and in number of deaths and casualties, progress toward resolving the conflict), and in peace (drop in crime rate, drop in violent death index, decrease of misery index, drop in unemployment, rise in a quality of life index). Societies using it perform extremely well in a very short time. This is what decreased the intensity of war in Lebanon in 1984 in a dramatic way in 48 hours, to name only one of the successful experiments.
In 1992, President Joaquim Chissano, Lt. Gen. Tobias Dai, and the Chiefs of Staff of the Mozambique military carefully analyzed the IDT research. They made a unanimous decision to adopt it for their country by training about 3,000 soldiers and 16,000 police.
As predicted, violence disappeared by 1993. Societies using these groups also become more self-sufficient. For instance, in Mozambique the economic growth reached 19%. Once the poorest world country in 1992, by 2000 it had moved up to be the world's fastest-growing economy.
History has been shaped technological innovation that was radical at the time. The Roman Empire developed a revolutionary sword. British soldiers used their new menacing muskets. The German war machine required fast engines burning fossil fuels to launch their Blitzkrieg. Powerful atomic weapons as well as the flying devices that carry them have greatly influenced political decisions since World War II.
Such technological innovation is taking place now. At least one Latin American country is training 11,000 military IDT experts. The historical ramifications of this are profound. According to previous research, this number will create a global effect of coherence. By accessing the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature, this military IDT group will harness the most powerful force in the universe, and hence become the most powerful military in the world - simply by creating a peaceful influence.
If Commander-In-Chief President Obama really has "...a deeply held preference for peaceful solutions," he should have the courage to order the US military to use IDT. If he quickly acts, the US could once again make history by catching up just like it did with the Russians in the race for outer space. It could gain international prestige by winning both the race to conquer the ultimate "inner space" - the unified field and create lasting world peace.
